The world is filled with a lot of oppositions. Indeed, many people have lost their values and consciences due to the fact that they cannot survive oppositions and rejections.
They are of the opinion that if you cannot beat them, you have to join them.
They lack principles and backbone acting like the proverbial jelly fish.
Besides the fact that he believed in God, Daniel was a man who had principles. He lived in a polluted and perverse environment that questioned his faith.
He was like the sheep amongst a variety of goat species.
He was distinct and different.
Even when his prayer life and commitment to God was questioned, he remained undeterred.
He remain poised and steadfast without wavering.
Dear friend, DARE!
Dare to be different.
Dare to be a light in this dark and crooked world.
Dare to say the truth without fidgeting.
Dare to say NO when necessary.
Dare to act Godly even when it is least convenient.
Dare to say no to whatever will buy your conscience.
Dare to pursue your goals even when it seems difficult.
I, for one, dare to surpass the norms and break the yoke of mediocrity.
I dare to be an individual with a godly backbone, a force to be reckoned with.
Dare to be that only beckon of hope when others are compromising.
